10/10 Exceptional

Elegant and Relaxing Slice of Heaven in Provence
When we were planning our trip in the South of France, my husband said that he wanted to stay at a bed and breakfast in a historic home. We did some research and found Chateau de Varenne. It looked wonderful and then managed to exceed our wildest expectations. The historic building is in immaculate condition and is beautifully furnished. The pool and grounds were stunning. The large French breakfasts were the best we had on our entire vacation. The laundry service was much appreciated as we were running out of clothes near the end of our trip. Emma and her family who run the place are extremely helpful, attentive, and kind. Emma assisted us with dinner and tourism recommendations. The Chateau feels like you are in the middle of nowhere with its peaceful beauty, but in reality you are steps away from great restaurants and a short drive away from the city of Avignon. I recommend Chateau de Varenne most highly.

Absolutely stunning chateau with incredible staff!
My fiancé and I stayed here for a few days for our summer holiday. This was the most magical, romantic, and beautiful place I’ve ever stayed. The staff was so friendly and beyond nice. The breakfast was a great spread (and they were kind enough to lay out gluten free options for my fiancé each morning which was actually really good). I cannot stress how peaceful and relaxing being here was. 10 out of 10 experience.

This is a fantastic property, with amazing grounds, a quiet pool, and evening seating rooms that are nicely decorated. The breakfast is terrific and you can sit out on a large gorgeous seating area overlooking the valley. Emma is an amazing hostess, with a great sense of fine detail. Even if it's a splurge, book this hotel; one of the nicest hotels we stayed during our 3 weeks in France.

Just what my soul needed!
My stay at Chateau de Varenne was out of a fairy tale. From the moment we arrived, the owners, Emma and Paul, treated us like friends and were very welcoming. The entire staff was truly a delight to be around. As was Woody, their beautiful dog who was always there to greet everyone. When the gates open to let you in, you are transported to a serene and calm retreat. The property is beautiful and impeccably decorated, full of charm. I was in awe of every single detail. I was in heaven. So much so that I extended my stay and will make my way back there as soon as I can. Thanks so much for everything Emma and Paul.
